Father, daughter exhibit
FATHER and daughter tandem Vincent and Cezanne Padilla headlines the March exhibits at Art Elements Asian Gallery at SM Aura in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City. Vincent Padilla is known for using the glazing method and transparent oil painting on canvas for his background, deliberately contrasting with the impasto alla prima painting of his figures. A UP Fine Arts graduate, he represented the country in the 2004 ASEAN Art Awards in Thailand after being chosen as a Juror’s Choice Awardee in the Philip Morris Philippine Art Awards. His works have been exhibited in New York, Hongkong, Singapore and Malaysia. Eleven-year-old Cezanne Padilla is a musical prodigy playing the piano at age two. She then started painting correct hand gestures from her piano training and each image represents the proper way of playing the Suzuki twinkles. Art Elements Asian Gallery also features guest artists Joan Balbarona, Van Tuico, David Justimbaste and Hanna Supetran.
